I had the pleasure of shooting Tracy & Andrew’s wedding with my second shooter Melissa.  Surrounded by friends and family, in their church, and with love in their hearts, they devoted their lives to each other. Tracy’s sons were a pleasure to hang out with, and it was so clear from everyone who attended the wedding how much support Tracy & Andrew have as they start this next chapter of their lives together.  We lucked out with warm spring weather (a stark contrast from the spring snow storm we’re experiencing right now!) and the whole day was wonderful.

It’s been a delight to get to know Mehvash & Saad over the past couple of years. We’ve now done a few weddings of couples in this circle of friends and family, and we have at least one more on the horizon. Everyone is so kind and welcoming, and working with them has been a joy.  Saad moved here from California and found the love of his life in Mehvash – together they are a wonderfully sweet couple, and to hear their families speak about them you can tell that they are a perfect match.  I have to say I also felt a lot of pride in my hometown when Saad had to many kind things to say about Edmonton and the people in it.

Mehvash & Saad celebrated their marriage last August, and recently held their wedding reception with friends and family here in Edmonton. Thanks to my second shooter Sam.

    That looks like a lot of fun! I love the wrestling belts and boxing gloves! Looks like it was well received by both sides! :)

You don’t have to wait until the spring or summer, if the weather cooperates Edmonton can be beautiful for winter family photos!

I had so many couples this year opt for a winter engagement session! We had great luck with the weather, and I love how adventurous Linda & Justin were – they had no hesitation to get down in the snow together!

I’m a sucker for a good proposal story.  Brendan emailed me with a fantastic plan: a winter picnic at a special ravine location.  We didn’t have a lot of opportunity to communicate since he was driving to Wisconsin to pick up Andrea just days before the winter proposal.  He sent me some photos and directions to the location and I headed down into the ravine with my second shooter Sam a couple of days before to scout it out and make a plan for the shoot.

Here’s Sam, pretending to be proposed to so I could figure out my angles….

On the day of the shoot we got to the location, got all set up, and then watched as Brendan & Andrea walked in the OPPOSITE direction that we were expecting to!  It threw us for a bit of a loop, and we literally almost walked right into them as we were crossing paths in the river valley. We managed to make it back to the right spot in time, and without Andrea suspecting a thing.  Sam found a great hiding spot under a bridge, and I tried to look inconspicuous just standing around in the ravine.

Andrea & Brendan are SO incredibly sweet together, and Sam and I had the best time sharing in their special proposal.   Andrea is from Peru and I have to applaud her for being so willing to have a photo shoot in the cold and snow!  We wish them a beautiful and happy life together!

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Caitlin in the past, and when she emailed asking me to shoot new headshots for her re-branding I was so excited! Caitlin is the owner of Caitlin McElhone Events, and she specializes in corporate and wedding events. She is so sweet and bubbly, but also an incredibly hard worker who goes above and beyond for her clients.  Her attention to detail really sets her apart, and she is very active in the event industry in Edmonton, including ISES Edmonton.

Just a couple of quick photos of sweet baby P who visited my studio when she was about 6 weeks old. She didn’t want to sleep for me, but I love her beautiful big eyes!

I have a confession to make.

I missed a blog post. There, I said it! One of my qualities that I am most proud of is my organizational skills. So to miss a post feels…weird! I have a perfectly good explanation though, the shoot that I am sharing with you today was up for publication in a few different places just after it was shot (and has since been shared all over the place!) so I couldn’t post until we heard about the publication.

Here are a few of the places this fun country shoot has been published:

Amy Atlas
Wedding Obsession
Bridal Fantasy Magazine
The Tres Chic
Special Event Rentals

And…I’m sharing it with you now! I’m not a vintage/rustic/country girl, but my dear friend Stacey from JoyFoley Weddings pushed me out of my comfort zone a little bit and allowed me to stretch my creative muscles with this stylized shoot. We had SO much fun and wrapped everything up with a team dinner.

I’m so happy with these images, and it makes me feel so warm to share this Rustic Country Wedding Inspiration Shoot with you today.

Shoot Location: Tofield, Alberta, Canada
Shoot Design & Planning: JoyFoley Weddings & Styling
Photography: Shandro Photo
Flowers: Cory Christopher
Hair Styling: Sara Murphy
Makeup: BeautifulU Makeup Artistry
Stationery: JoyFoley Weddings & Styling
Dresses: Delica Bridal

Remember Kristine & Sean’s warm fall engagement session?  They love photos so much that they wanted to do more, this time in the winter! For their winter engagement photos their dog Raidyn joined them again, and we headed out to the frozen tundra (AKA rural Alberta). I love my adventurous couples, and especially the ones who don’t think I’m crazy for climbing on top of random things to take photos.  I can’t wait for their wedding this August!
